Midland, TX (Big 2 News) - A portion of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, is under debate in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Hobby Lobby, an arts and crafts store, is one of two businesses challenging the mandate that requires for-profit employers of a certain size to offer insurance benefits for birth control and other reproductive health services without a co-pay.

"We want to continue to live out our faith in our business," said Barbara Green, Hobby Lobby owner.

Protesters gathered outside as the high court began opening arguments Tuesday morning.

It's the second largest legal test to President Obama's health care law in two years.

We asked our viewers how they felt about this on our Facebook page and many replied.

Diann Ervin says, "I feel that companies should have rights about certain services they choose to give."

However, others disagree.

Dan Haas says, "Making working for a corporation whose "beliefs" you don't agree with so burdensome that you can't reasonably work there is tantamount to religious discrimination."

"Millions of women and their right to preventive care including birth control is trumped by a handful of CEOs who have their own personal opinions on birth control," said Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood.
